I seem to recall thinking at the time that the sound was really good down in front!! I could be wrong but it seems to me, being that close, we were hearing it pretty much as the boys were hearing it through their stage monitors. I remember it not having that echo-ey sound that was always prevelent at Spectrum shows.

Afraid to ask, but...

Did someone say Bob fell? Although I don't take as much pleasure in bashing him as some here (I do find myself snickering to what some write though) I can't help but ask for details on his spill. If anyone as a YouTube link to this, I'd appreciate it.
Thanks,
Rat

Yes Bob fell....I was on the rail for this show, so I was in the door 2 hours before show time. Sometime before the show started a guy came up with a big paper sign requesting that they play unbroken chain. Not knowing what to do with the thing, he got help(from security, I think)placing it down on the very front of the stage. In the second set, during the Estimated Jam, Bobby was doing his dance where he hops from one foot to the other. He got a little too close to the front of the stage and landed on the sign.
The paper moved and his feet slipped out from under him and he landed on his ass. I'll give him credit, he recovered quickly. He swung his legs around and sat with his legs hanging off the front of the stage as if to say "I meant to do that". He stayed that way for maybe 10 or 20 seconds before getting up and going back to his spot.
If you listen to AUD tapes of this show, you can hear the crowd roar during the jam in Estimated when it happened. There is an audience shot video of this show that circulates. The copy I have seen misses this as a good part of the 2nd set uses graphics to patch for missing video. Unfortunately, this portion of the video is missing.
